50's Diner

Recommended Posts

Over the past couple of months I have designed and built a 50's style diner and created it using a 3D printer.

Not one piece is glued all slot and fit.

 

Finally got the electrical done today 3mm LED for the eaves and 5mm LED for the entry. They are all recessed to give a spot light effect.

The "neon lights" are EL Wire. $5 for 4m including adapter from China, easy enough to rewire but you do need the adapter for them as they convert from DC to AC, so if you are cutting them shorter you'll need another adapter for each section you want to reuse.

3 modes - Solid or 2 different flashing.

Totally recommend them.

 

I think the doors are a bit big, lets just say the diner is in Texas, otherwise I am pretty happy with it so far.

Will be using document cover clear protector sheets for the windows/door infill, also have to do the backdrop and roof, that'll just be painted/printed card.

 

This is it at 9v, will be 12v when all complete and fully hard wired.

....envious of it all.

You should be well pleased - very impressive.

Can't have a diner without roller girls now can we, complete with bluetack burger, and tie wire rollers & straws.

 

I'll tidy up and paint later, I'll also try and think of a better drinks and burger arrangement they are a bit big.

Unfortunately the people are about 1:50 scale, shame I was hoping for closer to 1:43.
